Amy Schumer Blames Her Netflix Special's Poor Reviews on 'Alt-Right Trolls'
Amy Schumer’s new stand-up special for Netflix is receiving overwhelmingly negative reviews, and she thinks she knows who's to blame.
"The Leather Special" debuted on the streaming service last week, and it's already gotten hundreds of one-star reviews from Netflix subscribers.
“The alt-right organized trolls attack everything I do. Read the @splitsider article,” Schumer wrote. “They organize to get my ratings down. Meeting in sub Reddit rooms. They tried on my book and movies and TV show.”
She also called out the media for reporting on the negative reviews and the fact that her special appears to be a critical flop.
“I am only alarmed by the people printing their organized trolling as ‘news.’ [T]his is what the current administration wants,” she argued.
She said the trolling actually reminds her that she is "powerful and dangerous and brave," and that's why she's being targeted.
"Call me a whale. Call me a thief and I will continue to rise and fight and lead," Schumer wrote. "I know who I am. I am strong and beautiful and will use my voice my whole time on this earth."
"Journalists, do better. It's embarrassing. Trolls, see you on the next one!"
